Idaho Transformational Collaborative Outcomes Management (TCOM) Institute

Inspiring client-centered care through community-wide collaboration. 

About Idaho TCOM

The Idaho TCOM Institute promotes collaboration between system partners to standardize the delivery and application of the Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS). This enables greater collaboration around the needs and strengths of child serving systems to increase the effectiveness and improvement in the way Idaho's children, youth and families are served.

Currently, the Idaho TCOM Institute consists of the CANS Training Network and the CANS Learning Collaboratives.

We want to hear from you!
If you have questions, comments, or would like to see how you can be involved, please email ITI.
CANS Training Network

The CANS Training Network ensures reliable and accurate results from the CANS, knowing it is the only way to achieve outcomes that are useful. Outcomes are used to drive treatment for children, youth and families while simultaneously informing systematic issues.

There are two trainings currently being offered for CANS users:

  • CANS Certification Training is an overview of the Idaho CANS. Providers will be able to administer and reliably complete the CANS certification exam.
  • CANS in Practice provides an understanding of how to use the CANS in collaborative treatment planning.

CEU information for CANS in Practice training

Three continuing education units are offered for participating in the CANS in Practice training. It is the responsibility of the participant to ensure that this training meets continuing education criteria for your respective licensing board and that the trainer's level of education is at or above your own level of education.

CANS Learning Collaboratives

The Regional and Statewide CANS Learning Collaboratives promote interaction among community partners and shared responsibility for future strategy, enhancement, and sustainability of the CANS. A community-wide collaboration cultivates reliable and accurate results so that families can be confident in the outputs of the CANS.

The CANS Collaboratives are for all CANS users to learn about local trends, ask questions and share CANS experiences
